  1. What? How was that not illegal?😱

    • @Qunited States Patriot I don’t know about that. But it is not illegal to secretly video your wife’s privates during sex, unless the spouse posts it or shares it somewhere. I think that is a bunch of bullshit. I caught my stbx husband, and even caught him lying to me about it three times on texts, until I finally told him I found the video. First it was, “I would never do that to you!” It turned into, “What? I erased that.” Yeah, well, regardless of what the law says, any person who does that to their spouse of 18 years is a loser. But, unless you post it, it is not considered “revenge porn,” which is bullshit because the threat continues. If I know he did it, and had it on his computer, that means it would also be in the cloud, and he could do whatever he wants with it later. It’s nearly impossible to find a video without knowing the site.

    • @Isabelle Mavendorf how about the draft stupid?
      Have women been forced by law to put their bodies on a battlefield?

      @cj p yes

    • @Amy Kline I’m truly sorry to hear what you’ve suffered through, and hope any current or future Love interest treats you with the loyalty and respect you deserve. Something tells me if you encounter another loser, you’ll promptly kick em to the curb. Best wishes to you Amy.

    • Like a beta like you hasnt probably done ten times worse.

  3. Why do idiots do stupid things??? Have a little respect.

    • Alger Acumen Do you expect idiots to do smart things?

    • Alger Acumen I think your question answers itself. I was raised on the principle β€œThere are no stupid questions.” And I teach my daughter the same principle. Your question seems to challenge the principle. No slag, just a reminder to check your post before hitting the button.

    • @MG Stevens yes. My question was meant to be rhetorical. I was stating my point of view. This is one of the big differences between the younger generation and the boomers which I am a part of. They seem to thing that we are the dumb ones yet this report would challenge that.

    • Alger Acumen – They’re definitely creeps. But at the same time, if you wear short skirts without underwear, I’m not going to feel sorry for you when someone sees your hoo-hoo.

    • @Bovine One Agreed. If you invite someone to dinner they will want to eat.

  4. Props to this woman. An agent of change!

      @Gina Martin You are under massive mind control and a product of being taught the anti-christ doctrine as truth so your world view is messed up. Through you think you are fighting for great causes your really not. Remember feminism is part of the anti-christ doctrine, because the head of the woman is the man. Yes that is a 2,000 year old writing but that is the doctrines of Christ anything that is opposite of that is anti-christ. God says male and female, I created thee. Anything that differs is of Satan. Marriage, God says is between a man and a woman, anything that differs is of the evil one.

      It is very simple cause I speak the unfiltered truth. How does Jesus define Satan?

      “He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

      Who supports murdering from the beginning than lies about it calling it planned parenthood and women’s reproductive rights? The children of God or the children of the Devil?

      (Matthew 13:37-43) “He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.”

      (Matthew 13:44-50) “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

      Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

      Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”

      (Matthew 13:51) “Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things?”

  5. I Love this interview. what a beautiful discussion.

    Good for her. Such garbage that something like that wasn’t a chargeable offense.

    • Thanks Joshua! Appreciate it.

    • @Bovine One I was not aware that every girl in the world was going around half nude at the beach

    • Ryan Drayton – I didn’t say that they were.

    • Ryan Drayton – However, if a girl CHOOSES to go to the beach half nude she cannot reasonably expect nobody to photograph her. Likewise if she CHOOSES to wear a short skirt she cannot reasonably expect that nobody will see her underwear and possibly even photograph it.
      However, with regard to upskirting, there is malicious intent involved. The person doing the photography is attempting to gain access to something he wouldn’t otherwise see. So I’m fine with a law that says you can’t use a device to do it. But the woman also has to be reasonable. A gust of wind, a bar stool, a stumble or a sharp bend over could just as easily provide visual access to her underwear.

    • @Bovine One I was not aware she was trying to outlaw accidentally seeing anything with your logic a pedophiles can just wait for girl sc in skirts to walk by a beach is a public place you have as much on as you want others to see and yes you have a reasonable expectation of privacy if you have a skirt if you dont see a problem with a guy or girl taking a picture of something that’s covered and going around that cover the name of the action is up skirt not accident

    She should stand for Parliament, incredibly articulate and intelligent.

  10. There are some very concerning human beings in this comment section.

    • C T – I’m not justifying anything. Those creeps deserve everything they get. And if a woman walks down the street naked, she has no reasonable expectation of privacy. But that doesn’t mean it’s okay for ANYONE to lay their hands on her.

    • M Shuhaiber – I’m not talking about respect. Im talking about having a reasonable expectation of privacy and taking obvious preventative measures. Of course it’s disrespectful.

    • @Bovine One people with short skirts or skirts in general need to take preventive measures? Why?

      It’s not like they’re butt naked or walking around town in their lingerie, the standard set based on the news story is pretty achievable.

    • M Shuhaiber – They need to take preventative measures ONLY if they’re concerned with people looking at them. You don’t have a reasonable expectation of privacy when you’re in public. People are going to see you. If you want to wear revealing clothing that’s fine. But you can’t get mad when people see you or take a picture of you.
      Now obviously the guys who engage in upskirting have malicious intent. Which is why it shouldn’t be legal and why I compared them to pick pockets. But still, you can’t reasonably expect that nobody will see your underwear when you wear stuff like that. I feel like this is just common sense.

    • You littla antifa bitches dont care about invading rallies and attacking the elderly.

  11. England are a bit backwards, they’re always introducing laws a decade after Scotland leads the way.

  12. Trump doesn’t like you.
    He calls you spoilsport.

  13. There’s a couple of words that come to mind: Genuine and altruistic. Both have become lost traits that civilization absolutely needs.

    Assault! β€œUpskirting Assault” …

  15. They’re called “privates” for a reason, anyone taking a picture of your privates should be charged.

  16. Ms. Martin: From the US. Struggling with your accent. My problem, not yours, yet I mention it because your story is VERY important.

  17. WAY TO GO!!!!! This is inspirational for so many. Thank you

  18. This lady is just awesome, sux what happened to her but her actions will restore a bit of culture to our society. It’s sad that evolution has to work this way now a day
